The food is expensive and not good. You can get better food at almost any bar. The drink selection is minimal, which wouldn't matter if they had better food. The patio is ok, it's pretty loud with the traffic from the highway. Overall did not enjoy our experience there.

Ice cold food and you can buy better wings at the grocery store. Fries were ROCK hard. I would not eat here again.

Usually I don't bother with bad reviews but I was shocked at how far downhill this pub has gone. Even their pumpkin ale has taken a downward slide. The service was horrible -- the waitress didn't seem to know or care what she was doing, and was outright rude to other members of my party twice. The ale was sprinkled... More

A small group of us went for a birthday lunch at midday, mid week. We waited half an hour for our food which was average at best. Two of us ordered the club sandwich which was a child size portion on baguette. The perogies weren't fresh and the fries didn't taste great. $20 for nachos is a bit steep too.... More

Great location to people watch on the patio. However, the tables are too close together and makes it uncomfortable. The service is extremely slow and the wings are the worst I have ever had. The natchos with pulled pork were good.

The food was average. They have cool menu items, but the quality was disappointing. Small serving sizes. The beer they offer is good, but there is not a huge selection. Good location with lots of parking.

The burger was great and freshly made (cooking almost more than well-done which personally I like). French fries had a fusty taste however. Had a pint of the Red Beer that was just great. Service correct.

We went on a sunny Friday afternoon. Terrasse was full but plenty of tables inside. We wanted to grab a bite and have a beer. We let our waitress know we had to leave in about 30 minutes. We got our beers pretty fast and they tasted great, as usual. However we never got our nachos despite our waitress telling... More

Did a great job handling a large group. When we realized we were running short on time & needed to get our bills quickly the waitress was excellent. Food was good & a varied menu accommodated all our needs.
